Just tried to open my Blackbox and can’t!
The speaker panel seems to be hanging forward slightly and the key only turns about a quarter turn and fouls up.
Spent 10mins trying to open but had to give up as stuff on.
I’ll try later.

I noticed with turtles the way the stern backbox/speaker opens and closes can be a fiddly mess. I'd guess the backglss was put in incorrectly but somehow jammed in?
Looks a little bit off

@Colywobbles check how the speaker panel mates with the hinges. There is room for adjustment there and it's likely a bit off - try pushing it gently downwards.

yeah I also had the plate slightly off and on one bottom screws loosened then lined up and it was ok.

to open it see if you can get push up the translite a little as sometimes it comes down and gets wedged by the door.

From watching a bit of both streams, the pro model looks to be a fantastic game in it's own right. Think I'd be more than happy with a pro.

yeah as I said about a month ago from D82 the pro is a decent game. But the building is easily the best toy in the last 20 years. Its superb.

Neil, did yours work fine out of the box or were there any issues?

no issues with mine at all. Just changed the fan put speaker lights in and Scorbit and its rocking!

One thing to note is that when you activate stern insider you need to go online and confirm it.

Stern just buy a PSU from MW - they could ask MW to uprate the fan though.

Spooky use an even worse MW PSU and JJP's sounds like a Vulcan bomber on approach to port Stanley.

Ok I’ve done a few bits and pieces today and happy with outcome.
I’ve gone with Green but you could easily go yellow, Red or even clear which is far nicer than those horrible metal washers that damage your balls and worse the art on your slings.
With the guides I have cut out the missile’s to keep the pop of the chase effect pure.

Done around 4 different versions of the lockbar and coindoor but Inpersonally settled on these.
I’m open to ideas if anyone wants there own design.

I will do a shooter plate and maybe some speaker inserts once I can think of some suitable design.

Yep it’s leagues above Mando as sadly I’m a sucker for the bling.
Absolutely loving the game and starting to get my head around it however I’ve an annoying launch problem and I need to sort the speaker panel as it’s jammed shut. Also need to set up the slope of the table better as I think it’s cranked up way to much according the the bubble.

Mine was too steep too. I didn’t look at the bubble just set levellers where I normally do. But it was far too fast, so
to get the bubble in the middle I’ve ended up making ftont and rear levellers almost the same.
